The Water Tower in Kilińskiego Street in Pless is certainly the most modern and most spectacular monument in the town. The modernized construction looks particularly interesting, when illuminated at night. It was built between 1927 and 1928 as part of the municipal water supply, and its reinforced concrete structure was made by the famous company of the brothers Gryczów. In 2010, a restaurant in the steampunk style was opened in the tower. It is a real find for fans of science fiction.
"Paleya" (from the French word
“palais”meaning “palace”), as it is called in
Pszczyna, is a historic building of the former
Duke's Estates Directorate-General. The
building was erected in the northern neoGothic style, at the beginning of the last
century. During the First World War, the
headquarters of the supreme command of
the German imperial army was set up in the
building. German Emperor Wilhelm II
accompanied by, among others, Marshal
Paul von Hindenburg and General Erich von
Ludendorff often visited the headquarters.
After the conquest by Prussia, Silesia was
divided into districts. A number of the royal
officials appeared in towns and cities, which at
the same time meant that some privileges of
the local lords were cancelled. Landrats -
Prussian governors appointed by the king –
took over power in the districts. The present
building of the District Office was erected not
before the 80s of the nineteenth century.
Previously, the District Office occupied
successively two other buildings.
Pszczyna is an old town founded as a
settlement next to the Piast stronghold. The
medieval origins are reflected in the layout of
the town center characteristic for the
contemporary ways of building towns. The
heart of the town is the market square
surrounded with the neo -Baroque town hall,
the Evangelical church and houses of the
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, which is
regarded the most beautiful in Silesia. The
gridiron plan is enclosed by defense walls.
The regularity is only disturbed by the palace
and park complex adjacent to the town.
"Piastowska Street is the main promenade in Pszczyna. It is mostly lined with buildings from the nineteenth and twentieth century. However,
the most conspicuous house is a small tenement, roofed with shingles. It was built in the eighteenth century and now houses an extraordinary institution – the Wojciech Korfanty Museum of the Silesian Press. It collects Silesian prints, antique printing machinery and equipment. The museum recreates Wojciech Korfanty’s editorial office. On the first floor, “the Chamber of Telemann” can be found."
